TC TO JOHN WELSH
Templand, Thornhill, Friday 16th November / 1832—
My Dear Sir,
Your Father was called away, this day about a quarter before Noon. His Death was of the mildest; about two in the morning, he fell into a slumber; which deepened and deepened, and he awoke no more.
Mrs Welsh behaves herself well. I have, for the present, got her and Jeannie persuaded to retire and seek a little sleep.
Of course you will set out without delay. As I calculate, you will get this on Monday morning, and may be here next day. Perhaps it will be necessary to fix the day of Burial before you arrive: in that case Thursday or this day week may seem the fittest. But as yet there has been no consulting.
Expecting that our next communication will be face to face, I remain,
Affectionately Yours, /
